Leicester Section restrictions

Published: Tuesday, 09 April 2019

THE Canal & River Trust is warning of restrictions on the Leicester Section of the Grand Union Canal.

This, it states again, is because of the drought of last year and that the reservoirs are not filling as quickly as expected, Keith Gudgin reports.

Various stoppages

As reported in narrowboatworld, some leaking locks are being attended to again with various stoppages, one lasting up to ten days.

This time however, CaRT does not give any details of what the restrictions are only that they start at Lock 1 to Lock 7. Which of course is not a great help to boaters wishing to pass through those locks.
